Yep been to the big island many times.., prob my favorite pace to be,... Usually stay down towards the kona side off of Alii drive,...wonderful snorkeling as you prob realize already,..back to Maui again this year but planning a big island trip for 2014....sounds like EJ is on his way to becoming a force to be reckoned with.

Nice. I Haven't been to Maui in about five years. I really like Maui as there is never a shortage of things to do. Best snorkeling I ever did was in Kauai though, along with (in my limited traveling) the coolest vibe I've ever had before, snorkeling off the Na'Pali coast floating in the waterm& looking up at the jagged cliffs. Btw best beach I've been to was in the Phillipines. Pcs of both:

What an amazing thread and amazing work done on your frag tank!!! Could you post a link to your website? My tank is not set up yet, but when it is I'd love to order something from you as you have beautiful pieces!!! Also, maybe some shots of your personal tank? You kept talking about it throughout the thread and I'd love to see it!!!

Thanks for the posts & kind words all! Yeah I hope to get that Orca someday lol.

I actually have some more Bird's Nest & Stylophora Colonies arriving this week, for some variety. Not to mention I still got about 15 frags of the one from my DT, and that one I can cut a couple times a week lol.

Being in California is a benefit in itself. You have all the wholesale companies out there.,...well, all the ones worth mentioning.
If I buy a box of corals, it's about 80 bucks shipping, and that's if i don't trans ship.
